myseoulisforyou-deactivated2013 asked: I saw your post under the "bb cream" tag and I was wondering if you would be kind enough to let me know how the new bb cream you got from face shop is working for you? I am planning to buy a bb cream from the face shop but I am not sure what to buy as of now. :)


Answer:

Hi! So this is a review for the Oil Cut Dual BB Emulsion from the Face Shop. It’s especially for oily skin and absorbs excess sebum. I like it, although my main problem with it is that it only comes in one shade! It’s a very pale shade but i can still work with it - i just have to be careful with how much i’m putting on my face. A little bit goes a long way and you really want to make sure you blend it very well. I always apply an oil-control translucent powder on top of it and it definitely helps to blend the pale colour out a bit so i don’t look so ghostly! Apart from that, the SPF level is quite good (20) and it certainly does help out with the oil production. Of course, it isn’t perfect but i’ve worn it to work before and it has lasted all day, with an application at 6.30 in the morning up until i get home at 6pm. 

As you can see from the picture i uploaded, it also has a cute concealer hidden in the cap with a mirror too! Very handy, although i personally don’t use it since the colour is way too light for my skin. Another thing i should point out is that it has an odd minty scent, although it fades away after a few seconds :)

So overall, it gets the thumbs up from me but i do wish they had more shades than one! Remember, this one is specifically designed for oily skin and The Face Shop have an extensive range for other skin types too :) When i went to buy it, they let me test a small sample on my skin and i let it settle on my face for the rest of the day to see how it would react. The next day i went back to buy it. Definitely don’t buy a BB Cream without testing it out for a day! It may look good when you apply it in the shop, but a few hours later it might not look so great.
